October in Florence
Taylor, Florence, Fall 2012
March 25, 2013

The month of October was full of amazing people and exciting adventures. I continued to meet more and more people whom have all been welcoming. It is such a great feeling to meet new people and learn about their hobbies and passions. I have learned a lot about myself by making relationships with all different types of people. The friends I have made over here will last me a lifetime.

I explored the city of Florence a lot more this month than I did in September. I visited the Piazza Michelangelo which is one of the higher points in Florence where you get the best view of the city. I also wondered across the bridge to explore some new places to eat and hangout. Across the bridge I saw a lot more Italians than tourist. It was nice to feel like I was in a local spot than seeing tourist everyday.

I traveled to four countries on fall break: Slovenia, Hungary, Poland, and the Czech Republic. All four countries were so unique in their own way. While driving through Poland, we made a stop at Auschwitz and took a tour. It was very heart warming to walk through the death camp and feel the evil in the air. I will never want to go back there, but I am glad that I did it to share with my friends and family. I personally enjoyed Budapest, Hungary the most. I went caving under the city and also visited the thermal baths, which was very cool. Overall the month of October couldn’t have been any better!
